Feroz Khan is famous for his styles and dressings. He made his entry on the silver screen in 1960 after his return from a Bangalore-based English medium school. His career initially started as a hero in 'Didi', then he signed up for villain roles, and then made a comeback as a hero again.

Throughout the 1970s and 1980s, he was the top Bollywood star in films and often directed and starred in many of his films. The movie Qurbani  was the biggest hit of his career and also launched the singing career of Nazia Hassan. In 1988 he directed and starred in Dayavan which was a remake of a South Indian film Nayagan which starred Kamal Hassan. After he directed and starred in Yalgaar, he took a long break from acting for 11 years and took to producing, directing and even editing a few films. Feroz Khan launched his son Fardeen Khan's career with the 1998 film Prem Aggan which was however a box office failure. Feroz Khan made a comeback to acting with his most recently produced and directed film Janasheen which also starred his son Fardeen Khan and had Feroz make his first film appearance in 11 years. He starred with his son again in Ek Khiladi Ek Haseena  which was not however directed by him.

Feroz Khan likes sports-car races and has included this sport in Apradh and then again in Janasheen. He prefers his character name to be either Rajesh or Rakesh. He is a worshipper of Bhagwan Shri Sai Baba and always wears a gold ring on his finger and has a picture close to him. Sai Baba is revered and worshiped by Muslims, Christians, Sikhs, and Hindus in India.

Feroz Khan got married to Sundari in 1965 and they became proud parents of Laila and Fardeen. Despite objections raised by an Islamic Moulvi, Feroz and Sanjay got their children married to non-Islamic families. Laila was married to Rajpal, while Fardeen married Natasha Madhwani, the daughter of Mayur and former Bollywood hottie Mumtaz. Sundari and Feroz have been divorced since 1985.
